Trailer: 1978 Boler 17 ft
Posts: 19
Hi to all, I purchased this Boler two months ago, I have started to Refurbish the unit, it is the first Boler I have had, though my wife and I have tented it through to Motorhomes. We drove to Yellowknife from Windsor Ontario two years ago and spent $5000.00 on gasoline, needless to say that cured my attachment to Motorhomes.
So now I have a project to take me through the winter, here are a few of photos of my project. As of this posting I have removed 98% of the interior replaced part of the flooring, am waiting for a estimate on a new paint job, I am making new Oak panel doors along with all new paneling etc etc etc.. All the best Dave

Hi Tony. Think the water came in through various places windows loose rivets, the biggist problem I saw was lack of drain holes in fiberglass at the back section of the unit, but we fix Eh!.
Got a Quote of $1200.00 for painting, he was put onto me from a neighbour friend of mine, the guy painted his Camero so He does good work. Dave

Hi
Just an idea: I own a '77 Boler that had a water problem on the floor. That water was coming from the toilet window, between the two fiberglass wall. Just an idea......

Hi Gang Just a few more pics, almost finished replacing stuff, note the 30 Year old Decal It was stashed away in the trailer, found it when I was cleaning it out. Now I can match the Red for the stripes around the side. David
